[DMANET] [Reminder] CFP: DRCN 2016 - International Workshop on Design of Reliable Communication Networks


DRCN 2016 - International Workshop on Design of Reliable Communication Networks

14-17 March 2016, Paris, France.


Submission deadline: October 2nd, 2015

Notification of acceptance: December 4th, 2015

The International Workshop on Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN) is a forum for presenting excellent results and new challenges facing the field of the reliability and availability of communication networks and services. It brings together experts from industry, governments and academia, experienced in engineering, design and research.
We would like to invite you to contribute to and participate in DRCN 2016, which will be held in the very heart of Paris, France, the historical Latin Quarter district.
